  1. I've been wondering about adding smoothers to my UM2+ as on some prints, it's very noticeable. I have followed this thread and a few others, wondering about before and after result prints. 90% reduction sounds great! I was looking at your original post and was wondering if the addition of a 5015 blower fan for some airflow over the smoothers would be overkill or not?
  2. Hi @fergazz ! I have a soft spot for Dutch Orange, one of my favorite filament colors that ColorFabb makes. Glad you enjoy the channel! It's grown quite a bit on me in the last few months and I really enjoy the many projects I stumble into!
  3. Yes, autocorrect hit my post...I see Palette is working on some painting tools and other things. It's interesting. But has a ways to go
  4. I'm intrigued since many of the Palette reviews I have seen have not gone smoothly. It seems to take a lot of work to get successful prints with the Palette, based on what I have seen on YouTube channels like Turning Tech and others
  5. If you like that finish and have a 1.75mm printer, check out the Zyltech Silk Composite PLA. They only have Gold, Green and White...but it prints quite similar to MattForge at half the price. (And you can use my YouTube coupon code to save 15% NerdyisCool)
  6. I posted the cube above but here’s a MattForge print I did overnight on the 720 x 350 x 400 FT-6
  7. That's what halted my purchase for the UM3...the build volume. An amazing machine, I thoroughly enjoyed having some here on loan (for a show) but I needed more room for my projects. The S5 looks amazing but I just can't come up with that sort of money for one right now. I've had to resort to the FT-6 and upgrading some Chinese printers to make those things (2 CR-10S, Tevo Tornado, etc)
  8. I agree, the speed setting... I rarely print over 40/45 mm sec and I know a lot of people like to push their printers to the mechanical wall, going to 100 mm/sec or more. My prints are usually large and can span a few days. I'd rather get it right the first time...slowly. Versus many attempts faster 🙂
  9. I've been using it on a few machines (Geeetech A10, CR-10S and FT-6) and printing on PEI/springsteel surfaces or polypropelene ones. I found doing an extrusion multiplier test to fine tune the extrusion was very helpful (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2490893) I was a bit close to the bed on this print (as seen in the skirt) but 210 first layer and 207 after gave me some nice results.
  10. I was hoping the infill near holes/edges was fixed? I have several posts about infill overlap not working correctly (using Ultiamker's Cura profile for my Ultimaker 2+, Ultimaker filament...)
  11. I’m trying to like Cura 4 Fresh install on a new laptop, all default settings, changing one item...removing brim for skirt. As this print goes along, you hear the nozzle dragging on top of the print. Why? https://youtu.be/GVJ5v9ufHWo
  12. I'm curious what temp you are printing at. Sometimes I get that with some brands of filament and have the temp too high
  13. Right, I was hopeful that I could do something like this with Cura's UM2 profile, since it's very convenient for that first layer to be a little hotter.
  14. It sounds like your Start gcode is missing some stuff. Can you cut/paste what you have in there? There should be a G28 in there, ideally at the beginning, to home everything If you aren't sure where to find that, in the upper left where it says your printer, click the chevron/ arrow icon, that will give you the Manage Printers at the bottom of the list of printers. Highlight yours, hit manage printers. It should look like this
